the games like west virginia and duke. and i'm a big fan of coach gates. but i think west virginia is pretty good too. anyone can win. >> the whole tournament was wild. before you know it, you're training hard and getting ready tort nba draft. when did you start that train something. >> i'm going to the final four and coming back on monday and well as i want to improve myself. >> malcom from virginia tech is going to put his name in and come back to virginia tech. would you do that advice for that? >> i know all the fans at virginia tech are going crazy because he might leave. it will help him to get better. he's going to work out against guys -- he might work out against guys that are the best guards in the country. so that will help him. and if he comes back it's going to help virginia tech. it's good to test the waters, understanding that if nobody really wants me -- if nobody wants him to get drafted, they may take him or they may not. >> and they get a good look at you for next year. >> right. all you have to do is work hard. i think malcom is going to be a great player. and i think w
. that virginia tech ball club, if they won that game, they would have gone to the series. >> jason: florida state second place in the atlanta division behind klemm klemm sen. trailing klemm sen by two games. miami trailing georgia tech by one game in the coastal division. miami will have to win tonight to keep pace with the yellow jackets drilling the blue devils. miami doesn't face georgia tech until the month of may. the 14th through the 16th in atlanta. jason morris will face his former college baseball team. morris came to coral gables via georgia tech and hasn't. so that's the series to look forward to. the pitch is inside just as miami trails georgia tech their first place in the coastal division, the virginia cavaliers trail miami by just one game for t the it. stri by can you remember? >> i don't think it mattered. i was so small at the plate, i didn't have a strike zone. >> jason: any freshman hazing as we see miami for the first time tonight go down in a still evasive attempt and a very late jump by david villasuso. >> i'm not sure if that was a the hit-and-run. you saw villasuso looki
to the virginia cavaliers. we start with the wizards trying to win back-to-back games for the 1st time since midfebruary. let's bring in tonight's action. last time washington got a victory at home was against them so maybe this is a good sign. >> if you recall it was a game that josh howard injured his knee. the wizards are feeling pretty good. they come off a win with the hornets but against houston. against the hornets they got a terrific game from mike miller who was cutting down the paint, getting some layups. that was an offense they put in about a week ago and ran it well. >> we saw the wizards get a lot of points in the paint in the last two games. mike miller was a big part of that especially in the game against new orleans. we had a new season high in that game. the interesting thing he shot 9 of 14. that is pretty good. he missed his 1st 3 shots of the game. went on to have a season high in points. he knocked down the 3. he is still 3rd in the league in that department. this is one of those plays we were talking about. finishes with the left hand and gets two more points in the pa
for their efforts. host: next up is a trial in west virginia -- kyle in west virginia. caller: thank you very much for see again. i think it is an incredible public service. i'm sorry, i was listening passively when i heard that there was a bill in congress for shareholders to determine the executive pay of their ceos. that is a little crazy. host: why is that crazy? caller: i think that is the government overstepping its bounds, again. in my state, west virginia, we're really worried about this cap and trade and the epa regulation, especially as you know, there was an explosion down there, god bless their souls. west virginia is 49 out of 50 in per-capita income. when we start to put the pressure on these large companies, it does not really affect the people in the upper tiers. it starts to affect my house. west virginia gets 40% of the power of just from kolk for 50% of the population -- from coal for 50% of the population. we're all going to pay. host: we will leave it there. thanks for your call. guest: one point that he missed was the fact that this bill in congress would not require companie
other sports, it is republican and it is very high turnout. host: morgantown, west virginia. caller: goal mouth and ears, for tonight. first, a real quick comment. a couple of callers on the democrat line -- and i come -- this is a democrat state. he said that he finds the democrats are generally smarter than republicans. i think that kind of arrogance is going to cost the democrat party dearly in november. but getting back to sports -- one of the observations, politicians have been throwing out the first ball at the world series. i remember president reagan. i think he was the first president to go to the daytona 500. i think it was just to whip up his base. i do not know how many additional votes he got from that. i noticed that president obama the other day one of the major networks, asking who he liked in the major for -- and while he did not nail it down he spoke highly of west virginia and i believe matt lauer said i find it interesting that the only state you did not carry -- thinking if they get past due, they would go all the way. host: you looked at the final eight? guest:
performance for him in blacksberg, virginia, against virginia tech. went 8 innings of shutout basable against the hokeys. and his e.r.a. coming into the came, 13th best in the acc at 2.97. facing a very powerful miami team here. and a groundball snared by the 1st baseman kroker. thrown to 1st and lopez did not apply the tag on the speedy zeke devoss. and more controversy in the gables. >> wicho: i think that's partially the inexperience of carlos lopez. take a look. good play by the 1st baseman here. did not look like it was too mentr, lotting his tart at base. we'll tahere, jaso that throw and at first glance to looks like it got away. lopez getting his second start at 1st base. i think it's just one of those situations where you are not there. it looks like he could have stayed on the bag and it would have been a much easier play. even though i think the bag would still slide. for the second time in the the ballgame this will go in the hurricanes' favor. looks like the wrong call was made. >> jason: great job by the 3rd baseman kroker to field that sharply hit groundball. so the hurricanes
luck finally changed when he was offered a job as a newspaper reporter on the virginia city territorial enterprise. virginia city was the next town up from carson city. eureka, he said, his luck had changed at last. the enterprise was the liveliest newspaper between st. louis and san francisco. twain fit right in, besides assorted miners, and other desert rats, the town was home to a full contingent of prostitutes, called herdy gerdy girls. and gun slingers, by the names of six finger pete. twain spent the next two years reporting and sometimes inventing the news. he thoroughly enjoyed himself, usually at other people's expense, but his habit of creative reporting finally got him into trouble one day when arrival newspaper editor challenged him to a due em. twain preferred to avoid con flick, he didn't have time to fit a duel just then and besides, he had been drunk when he wrote the offending story. instead of fighting the duel, he left virginia city and came to san francisco, where much against his desires, he finally took a job on another newspaper, the morning call. san francisco ha
comes from lynchburg, virginia. caller: good morning. i would like to make a statement. i am noticing that mark potok and a lot of these lower-level interest groups would prefer to identify the kirch -- the christians and the extremists on the right side, but i hope that your organization works as well try to stop groups like greenpeace and extreme islamic organizations. people that are anti-emigrants, you are for -- you are against people that come into this country illegally. host: mark potok, co-head -- go ahead. guest: first of all, i would say there is not a lot of an extreme left. that said, we do cover and have covered a bit of the extreme left that really does exist, that is the so-called ego- terrorists. these may not be the best descriptions, but i'm talking about the animal liberation front. we ever been a lot about those groups. those groups increasingly engaged in a violent actions and they will without a doubt kill somebody one of these days. members of those groups or followers of that ideology have done things like firebomb houses in which supposedly lived so- called a

possible. a year and a half ago i moved to virginia. i have been a very thirsty for any afghan projects that have been going on here. i have not really found many. for instance, there are a few poetry clubs that afghan have made, which in part of, but, do you have any focus on the afghans that are here, uniting them, and giving the project to do here? >> thank you. one of the things that you are benefiting from is the very qualified afghans serving the embassy. we work with a number of afghan organizations on cultural events. we know that the potential for these afghans to do more is enormous. a number of them have formed their own groups, smaller groups that get involved in a lobbying efforts or business development. as i mentioned, one of the purposes of this foundation is to really bring all of these independent cells together and form a synergy between these different capabilities, and also to give afghans a place to go and to know what is going on better than what they have a right now. >> yes please, in the front. >> i am an independent consultant. i have two questions with regard

, at the university of virginia law school, always told me that we mispronounce it, -- it should have been called "tea-fra", tea for two. it was a remarkable solo performance by dole to deal with the problem we find insurmountable now, which is dealing with the deficit. at that time, we had very high interest rates. --i in the order of 18%. dole and members of the finance committee met with paul volcker, and he said if you pass a big package that cuts the deficit by a specified amount, he would ease off on interest rates. that was the motive they had, and the members of the finance committee, particularly republicans, it took that as a challenge, and we put together in 1982, and tefra was the tax piece, but there was a spending cuts piece. it was the three-legged stool. it was tax increases, spending cuts, and interest savings. it did get enacted, and volcker cut interest rates and that broke the back on high interest rates. it was a remarkable payoff for the country. it was a political exercise. while the compromise with people, -- while he compromised with people, he put together that package withou
